Schwalbe has developed a tire specifically for the sport of triathlon. Ambitious triathletes today use special time trial bikes and aerodynamically optimized wheels. The new Schwalbe Ironman is optimized for this set-up. In the optional tubeless version, it is particularly fast and puncture resistant.
The name Ironman is a trademark of World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) and is used under license by Schwalbe.
Handmade Tubular: Hand making a tubular tire is an art in itself. So, because production differs distinctly from the manufacture of regular bicycle tires, they are exclusively manufactured in a new Schwalbe factory. For each, individual "hand made tubular" a lot of careful craftsmanship is required, so only the most skilled people are employed to construct each tire and, by hand, stitch and glue together each part.
